Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Housing Authority:
The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) strives to provide affordable public rental housing (PRH) to low-income families with housing needs. The newly completed Lin Tsui Estate at Lin Shing Road in Chai Wan has just begun the intake process, offering new homes to more than 700 people.
Built on the former site of the Housing Department's Chai Wan Staff Quarters, Lin Tsui Estate has a gross area of about 2 000 square metres.
"Lin Tsui Estate is a single-block estate, with the block named Lin Tsui House. With 36 domestic storeys, the block provides a total of 288 PRH units including Type A flats (one/two-person), Type B flats (two/three-person), Type C flats (three/four-person) and Type D flats (four/five-person) with internal floor areas ranging from about 14 sq m to 35 sq m and monthly rents from $1,090 to $2,730," a spokesman for the HA said today (July 12).
Despite the limited site area, there is a landscaped garden and a children's play area as well as fitness facilities for the elderly and adults on the podium. As for shopping facilities, there are shopping centres in the vicinity of the estate.
The estate also provides eight parking spaces, comprising six for private cars and two for motorcycles.
Situated in the urban area, the estate is only a few minutes' walk to Chai Wan MTR Station and there are numerous bus and minibus routes to various districts.
